Surgeons and Physicians

Around the globe, the combined term "physician and surgeon" is used to describe either a general practitioner or any medical practitioner regardless of specialty. This practice still shows the original denotation of physician and reserves the ancient alteration between a physician, as a practitioner of physic, and a surgeon. In current English, the term physician is used in two key ways, with relatively broad and narrow meanings respectively. In the USA and Canada, the word physician describes all medical practitioners holding a professional medical degree. Physicians and surgeons diagnose illnesses and prescribe and administer treatment for people suffering from injury or disease. Physicians examine patients, obtain medical histories, and order, perform, and interpret diagnostic tests. They counsel patients on diet, hygiene, and preventive healthcare.
